“Floral attraction”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

A renovated canal area which has been greatly enhanced by the floral displays. This can also be said for most of the centre of Birmingham which was bursting with colour. Well done BCC. Apart from strolling around this area, you can also take a trip on a canal boat which was a very pleasant way of spending an hour when the temperature was hitting the 30s.

We walked around whilst heading out for Dinner. It's pretty, the atmosphere is friendly and there's lots of places to stop for a drink/eat/etc.

“A fun destination”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

Lots of bars and restaurants, great place to go before a gig at the BSH or NIA but do book the place gets very busy. A real cafe culture scene with tables outdoors when the weather permits. We've eaten or had drinks at a number of the places here & have never been disappointed. Good for people watching too! Always amazed nobody falls in the canal!
